  • StrengthsQuest
    • Grounded in Positive Psychology, StrengthsQuest is a development and engagement program designed to help students, educators, and staff members achieve success in academics, career, and life. Societally we generally focus on how you need to improve rather than what you naturally do well. This focus on “not enough” has greatly affected our lens through which we view others and ourselves. This program shifts that perspective and allows individuals the opportunity to develop talents into strengths. 
  • Event Planning
    • This workshop will present you with tips and tools to help your organization to plan a successful event. This workshop is highly recommended for newly elected student organization event/programming planning roles. 
  • Teambuilding
    • Fun hands-on activities for groups who are looking to learn a little more about the way their group functions together.
  • Leadership Styles
    • Through this workshop participants will learn about various leadership styles and identify their own. Discovering your unique leadership style can help leaders understand what they personally bring to the group and how to relate with others. 
  • Officer Transition
    • It may be that time of the year where your organizations are holding elections or filling positions. One major component for success in these roles is the ease and smoothness of position transitions. Through an effective transition, officers will decrease the time it takes to learn their position and allow them to improve their role abilities through previous officers experiences. Use this workshop to help navigate or develop an officer transition process.
  • Strategic Planning
    • Does your student organization need to develop an action plan or develop goals for the upcoming year? This workshop will teach you and assist your organization in the action planning and goal setting process. You should be leaving this session with a working document in hand.
  • Student Leader Professionalism
    • Having proper etiquette is a critical skill you will utilize in college, as a professional, and throughout your adult life. Learn the correct way to give a handshake, what to do when you forget someone’s name, and brush up on your table etiquette.
  • Risk Management
    • All student organizations should be concerned with risk management. No matter how big an event or how small an activity, risk will be present at some level. Learning to manage risk will reduce individual liability and ensure a fun, safe environment for participants. All registered student organizations are required to attend training sessions on a set of risk management topics as it relates to individuals, organization functions, and/or activities to maintain registered status.

Leadership Certificate Program

This program is intended to help students become more effective leaders in contexts where they currently serve or in contexts to which they aspire. This certification experience is two parts.

The first part of the program includes a developmental course. The content is based in the belief that leadership involves moral/ethical dimensions and that effective leadership equals good leadership; that is, it includes service to others and to contexts beyond the self, as well as authenticity and integrity. Students will examine these concepts through content from Tim Elmore’s Habitudes, TED talks and group discussion. Upon completion of the self-paced course, students will move to the second level.

The second part is designed to provide students with practical skills for development. Participants will be asked to:

  • Attend two self-selected University workshops.
  • Participate in 10 hours of documented community service.
  • Be involved in at least (1) dedicated leadership role.
  • Submit a reflection-capstone.

Upon completion of the program, participants will receive a certificate and graduation cords to signify program achievement.

Interested students may sign up for the program within the first 12 class days of an academic semester. Please email Barbara Barnhart for additional details.
